  1. You FOOL. YOU, woman, are a FOOL. And a LIAR. You might successfully confuse some people with that 6 minute rant on "vaccines" and "limited alternatives" but the TRUTH is that we do NOT NEED a vaccine. We HAVE, ON HAND, several alternatives that are NOT being used. You say "we do not have time" as 33,000 Americans are dying every year from opioids (get your statistics updated because that number is two years old). As the head of the NIDA if you do not have the power to expand the use of buprenorphine (subutex/suboxone) then you are USELESS. Either you do not have the power to expand the use of this med (meaning you are useless) or you simply do not want to end the problem that supports your funding (the more likely scenario). You FOOL, are you REALLY unaware that cannabis has proved to reduce opioid death by 25% OR MORE? Why didn't you mention cannabis? We do NOT have a problem of "limited alternatives" we have a problem of BANNING alternatives!! And instead of getting in front of the problem and making changes that can bring an end to this epidemic, you have demonstrated a desire to film a 6 minute RANT meant to convince Americans that "we are trying this and that" while your sister company, the DEA, does it's best to keep the cure OUT of the hands of the Americans who need it. STOP ACTING. Why not just admit that if you cure the opioid epidemic you will lose your funding so you need to monkey around with experimental vaccines while ignoring the UNLIMITED ALTERNATIVES we have at hand NOW? At least you wont be a corrupt scumbag AND a liar. YOU KNOW that 1 our of 4 deaths could END TODAY with the help of cannabis yet you claim we have "limited resources". You can fool some of the people some of the time but you cant fool all of the people all of the time. You sold your soul. YOU are part of the PROBLEM, not part of the solution.
